  • 1/4 cup 1 stick butter* at room temperature
  • 10 oz. grated cheddar cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 package of dry onion soup mix**
  • 4 diced strips of crispy bacon
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  • Mix butter and cheese
  • Add flour, soup mix, then bacon - and blend
  • Shape into rolls (It does not specify how many rolls***.)
  • Wrap in wax paper (I think plastic wrap will be fine - like a cheeseball)
  • Chill
  • Slice balls into 1/4 inch-thick pieces.
  • Place on ungreased sheet and bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned.


*The recipe calls for margarine - but I suggest that you never, ever consume or substitute margarine in any recipe.  But, you do you. 😀
**Any time a recipe calls for half a package of dry onion soup mix - I always use the entire package.  Hasn't hurt a recipe yet!
***This appears to be a bite-sized appetizer.  So I suggest forming several balls the are no taller/wider than a medium-sized potato chip, for easy handling.
